O God, the everlasting Creator of all things,
Remember that the souls of unbelievers
Were made by You and formed in Your own image and likeness.
Remember that Jesus, Your Son,
Endured a most bitter death for their salvation.
Permit not, I beseech Thee, O Lord,
That Your Son should be any longer despised by unbelievers,
But do you graciously accept the prayers of holy men
And of the Church and be mindful of Your mercy.
Forget their idolatry and unbelief,
And grant that they, too,
May someday know Him whom You have sent;
The Lord Jesus Christ, who is our Salvation,
Our Life and Resurrection, by whom we have been saved and delivered,
To whom be glory for endless ages. Amen.
